Being Myself

Written for:  Poetics Aside PAD November 2020 Challenge - Day 4

"For today’s prompt, take the phrase "(blank) Myself," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles could include: "Love Myself," "All By Myself," "Checking on Myself," and/or even "Blank Myself."


"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken" 
               ~Oscar Wilde

After years
of wishing to change
my inner
sight became
clear. I accept who I am–
graciously.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
